Inspired by Simon Says Stamp and Freshly Made Sketches #120...

I was trolling through my blogs looking for inspiration that would encourage me to overcome this lingering headache (at times migraine) of the last couple of days and do something in my craft room when I came across the new Simon Says Stamp challenge on their blog to make something funny.  Well, I have a lot of punny stamps including this month's Stamps of Life set, popcorn2stamp, which has been sitting on my craft desk waiting to be stamped on something.

So I set about stamping the popcorn container with Momento ink on some white card stock and colored it with my Spectrum Noir pens.  I masked the container off and stamped some popcorn on the top (after cutting a bunch of popcorn masks too).  Then I wasn't quite sure what to do with it.  I didn't really have any creative mojo so I pulled up the sketch for Freshly Made Sketches to see if it gave me any ideas and decided I could make it work. 

So I flipped through my 6x6 paper pads until I found some paper I liked in the Dilly Dally pad by My Mind's Eye.  Then it was just a matter of trimming my banner, gluing the background paper to my card stock, adding my banner and layering my popcorn box and some individual popcorn.  I used a few pop dots for some dimension and then decided the label needed a bit of sparkle with some Wink of Stella. 

For the inside, I stamped my sentiment in VersaFine Black Onyx and then matted it on a scrap of the paper from the banner and added a few more pops of corn.
